Daily Aspirin May Reduce Risk Of Cancer
Two recently released studies suggest that taking a daily aspirin may help reduce the risk of developing cancer and also prevent the spread of already developed tumors. In a study from the University of Oxford, the risk of developing cancer was 25 percent lower in people who took aspirin daily compared to those who took no aspirin. The research found a 37 percent reduction in the risk of cancer after five years of daily aspirin. Another study found aspirin reduced the risk of metastatic cancer by 36 percent and the risk of adenocarcinomas by 46 percent. Despite the encouraging news, experts warn that there are dangers associated with taking aspirin, including increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, and individuals should consult with their doctor before beginning to take daily aspirin.
